Dr. Dick Coop

Success seems to be Dr. Dick Coop's middle name. He is recognized by many as the top Sport's Psychologist in the world. He has mentored PGA Tour golfers who have won dozens of major championships. His successes include many other sports including Major League Baseball, the NBA, NASCAR, NCAA football National Championship teams and NCAA basketball National Championship teams and many others.

He continues to work with champions. Early this year after working with Dr. Coop for a short period of time, Steve Lowery, won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am at age 46. This was followed in June with a victory by another of Dr. Coop's clients, Justin Leonard. Justin won the St. Jude Championship in Memphis the week prior to this year's U.S. Open. This was Justin's 2nd win since he began working with Dick Coop a year and a half ago. The first was the Valero Texas Open last fall.

"I know the work I have put in with (teacher) Randy Smith and Dick Coop and my caddy, Brian Smith, and the support I've gotten at home from my wife and kids and parents and friends," said Justin Leonard after his victory in Memphis, "and when you can justify to them, you're sharing this victory with those people that pushed me to get better."
